What are the must-see or must-do attractions in Kerala?

I've been thinking about going to India for years and Kerala is definitely one of the regions I'd like to visit. If I have a limited amount of time, what are the most important things to see, experience, do, etc? Seems like a very tranquil place, so anything relaxing would be ideal.

    These are the list of lovely places you need to visit in a short period of time. If time permits, try to visit Thekkady, Thenmala, Wayanad.

    Dear Priscilla

    Though you have not mentioned the duration of the trip yet based on my experience, I would recommend Kochi/Kochi (2 nights), Munnar (2 nights), Kumarakom (1 night or 2 nights), Alleppey (1 night over backwater cruise) along with Varkala/Kovalam (both are beach destinations and you may dedicate 3-4 days there as per your interest).

    Finally, I believe having a Kathakali Dance performance with live makeup procession, an overnight stay over backwaters in a houseboat and boat ride near Munnar is some of the recommended activities to do while in Kerala.

    Here are few places from south to north.

    Trivandrum(Thiruvananthapuram) (TRV) - Good, if you want to check out the capital city, has a beach nearby, - skip if you don't want to see the past life - palace etc...

    Kollam - beach

    Alleppey / Kottayam / Kumarakom - famous for the backwaters - good to relax, paddy fields etc.. also a beach,

    Ernakulam (COK)- beach, few historical structures.

    Munnar - Hill Station - good to relax, ~100km from COK

    Wayanad- Great things to explore here

    AlleppeyCruise through Kerala in a houseboat!

    Have you ever gone cruising in a houseboat on the backwaters of Kerala? If you haven't, make sure you do. This one is really a wonderful and unforgettable experience! Alleppey or Kumarakom. Now you can choose your houseboat online via BoatGuru.in.

    Be sure to see India Backwaters.

    Try to take part in Kathakali performance, that's a kind of local theatre.

    There's a lighthouse in Kovalam with nice sight of coastline.
